TWE+: Development of a research quality & impact tool for teaching mobility assessment

TWE+: Development of a research quality & impact tool for teaching mobility assessment
Last week ELTE hosted the first Focus Group Meeting of the Teach with Erasmus+ project (TWE+) in Budapest, from 28th February to 4th March 2019. The participants came from all over Europe, namely from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (DE), University of Strasbourg (FR), National Research University – Higher School of Economics (RU), Pädagogische Hochschule Tirol (AT), Universidad de Alcalá (ES), UniLaSalle (FR) and from Hungary as well, namely from Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Károli Gáspár University, Óbuda University, Tempus Public Foundation and Eötvös Loránd University.

The aim of the meeting was to think together and share knowledge and good practices regarding teaching mobility. Participants were guided through a service design process in order to provide input for developing a quality and impact assessment tool for teaching mobility. The trainer was László Horváth, PhD candidate from the Research Group for Higher Education and Innovation of the Institute of Education of Eötvös Loránd University.

After the hard-working training days, the participants summed up their experiences of the week and the next steps of the project on Monday.

About the TWE+ project
The project consortium consisting of Eötvös Loránd University, UniLaSalle, University of Alcala, the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe (UNICA) and the European University Foundation (EUF) has identified that staff mobility for teaching is often not of sufficient quality and not easily accessible for (especially junior) teaching staff.

For this purpose, the TWE+ project is trying to tackle the accessibility to teaching mobility, as well as to set a framework that allows Higher Education Institutions to measure the quality of teaching mobility. Furthermore, the consortium aims to collect a catalogue of innovative pedagogical tools & methods to be made available to the Higher Education sector.

At the centre of the project outcomes will be the Erasmus+ Teaching Mobility Platform (ETMP), a Marketplace where institutions/teachers can offer and find teaching opportunities. The ETMP will be a logical continuation of, the current platform providing a marketplace for staff mobility for training.

The project is funded by the Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships Programme of the European Union.
